    I have been working at Regis Corporation full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great opportunities to build clientele quickly (especially in SmartStyle brand locations), excellent benefits, paid time off, supportive leadership, opportunity for advancement, innovative education tools, discounts on professional tools, contests with fantastic prizes!

    Cons

    Company has been through a lot of changes over the last several years, creating some trust issues within the field.

    Advice to Management

    Offer more competitive wages to put recruiting on a more even playing field, especially for locations that are extremely difficult to staff.

    Pros

    If you understand how they pay the money is awesome I started off as a stylist. It’s easy to build a family not just a staff. I’ve had okay leaders and awesome leaders. I learned what I could from each one and applied it when I became leader.

    Cons

    Every where you go you have some of these. You chose the ones you want.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to your staff they have a lot to offer you would be amazed what you learn from them.

    Pros

    Love my group of salon leaders and stylists

    Cons

    Feeling under valued, unheard. Working harder for less compensation

    Advice to Management

    If you want quality members of this company, make an investment to those driving revenue and daily operations. Take a walk in their shoes and experience year over year loss in pay.

    Pros

    I enjoy what I do, interacting with people, helping them grow, paid trainings

    Cons

    Employees are undervalued and overworked

    Advice to Management

    Remember that when you treat your employees well, you create loyalty. When you under value them, through poor pay plans/salaries, you lose good people. Remember that the backbone of the company is the stylist, not the corporate people or the stock/share holders.

    Pros

    High traffic salons, so you can gain a lot of experience and have the opportunity to build a clientele. Don't have to worry about paying for products and color, it is provided for you.

    Cons

    Minimum wage base pay, which isn't enough to live off of as a single adult. Hard to meet "jump plan" to get higher pay per hour. Extremely high turn over rate because of the lack of reason to stay. Short staffed so they take advantage of someone who has an open schedule by not allowing them to have a set schedule. Only type of training they provide is in front of a computer, don't even have actual specialists teaching color classes or cutting classes. They provide insurance but because the pay is so low, you cannot afford it and have to go through the state insurance.

    Advice to Management

    Start paying State Licensed Cosmetologists a livable wage and you might keep more people at your company.

    Pros

    Free hair color once a month

    Cons

    They send out mass coupons and dont give credit back towards what the stylist has to doscount.

    Advice to Management

    Pay us what we are worth. Give us credit for what we are discounting. All you District Leaders need to go up to bat for your stylists we work hard. Our paychecks arent the same every 2 weeks like yours.
